I was educated at Oxford University, reading Latin and Greek at The Queen's College. The college's outstanding poet is Ernest Dowson.

I was awarded a Doctorate on the Roman epigrammatist Martial in 1994.

The following year I had a breakdown and had to abandon the academic life. The year after that the Muses came. Nothing has been the same since.

Best Poem of Richard George

Eclipse: A Haiku Sequence

at first, sunlight changing; then
dusky, or faded,

filter on the lens
encroaching, sky blue into
grey, then grey-lilac,

colours blur, textures,
shadows cast paler, out of
focus, sudden cold

strikes us uneasy,
half moon sun on leaves jangles
crescent reflections,

dragonflies hawk the
gloom, birds on their way homewards,
green murk of low cloud


and back, like a switch,
heavens as dawn six o'clock,
luminous, bleary -
